Supreme Court Orders Microsoft to Fuck Off

WASHINGTON, DC (DPI) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday ordered the Microsoft Corporation to take a flying fuck. In a unanimous decision, the Court issued the opinion that Microsoft "should just get the fuck out of here." Speaking for the majority, Justice Atonin Scalia stated that "Microsoft needs to get the fuck out of our faces and stop wasting our time." Microsoft spokesman Jim Cullinan said his company needed time to read the decision and interpret the Court's intent. The Justice Department was quick to applaud the Court for its ruling, saying they've wanted Microsoft to get the fuck out of America's face for years now.

Yusuf Islam Changes Name to Cat Stevens

LOS ANGELES, CA (DPI) - In a move reportedly "not at all motivated by fear," Yusuf Islam has changed his name to Cat Stevens. "You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do, and it's breakin' my heart in two," Islam/Stevens said during a recent visit to a local barber shop. Added Stevens, "Ooh Baby, Baby, it's a wild world." Stevens claims to have received a message from the Prophet Muhammad revealing that fame and fortune wasn't a sin after all. "Man, was that a pretty groovy thing to hear. Can you dig it? Hey, what year is this, anyway?"

Red Cross Uses Donations to Purchase Afghanistan

Kabul, Afghanistan (DPI) - The American Red Cross announced today that they had raised enough money to purchase Afghanistan outright. Chairman of the American Red Cross, Norman Augustine, told the press, "The outpouring of support from the American and International community has been overwhelming. After reviewing the results of the celebrity telethon, we discovered that we have collected enough money to purchase Afghanistan. Given the past 30 years of war that has torn the country, we were able to pick it up for just shy of $20 million U.S. dollars." Stunned Taliban officials quickly accepted the deal, with a spokeperson saying, "Sure, we are a spiritual people, but a buck's a buck!"

Mysterious "No Clothes Lady" Discovered on Internet

LOS ANGELES, CA (DPI) - Experts were baffled today by a photograph of a completely unclothed lady discovered on a Los Angeles-based website. According to reports, the lady appears to be ordinary in all respects except for her lack of clothing. Social scientists and psychologists are convening to discuss the photograph in detail and determine why this lady appears to be fully naked, with all of her most intimate body parts showing. Several scientists have already suggested that perhaps the lady suffers from an allergy to textile products. An FBI expert alertly pointed out that the lady didn't seem to have an allergy to spike-heeled shoes. Much, much more study is forthcoming.

Benny Hill Fundamentalists Seize Control of Monty Python Fansite

LONDON (DPI) - A fundamentalist fan group in support of Benny Hill violently took control of a Monty Python website today, ending the eight-year reign of the majority Brian Of Nazareth party. Throwing rocks and repeatedly slapping opposition forces on the backs of their bald little heads, masked demonstrators moving in fast-motion purged the site of all Holy Grail tokenism including the signature Knights Who Say "Nih" homepage and Flying Circus theme music. The current uprising is believed to be the worst infighting among rival British Cult Comedy factions since a Fawlty Towers suicide squad shut down all traffic to the Absolutely Fabulous website in 1997.

U.S. National Guard Attacks U.S. Terrorist Training Camp

LANGLEY, VA (DPI) - Fighter bombers from the Virginia Air National Guard carried out successful strikes against CIA headquarters and the School of the Americas last night. National Guard spokesman Lt. Colonel Robert Schumann reported, "We're just happy to be doing our part in the war against terrorism. When we found out that the CIA and the School of the Americas have been providing training for terrorists around the world for years, we were shocked -- shocked and outraged! To have this kind of thing going on in our back yards made us hopping mad. Those American bastards thought they could get away with this, but we taught 'em a lesson they'll never forget."

Mariah Urges World to Get Back to Normal, Start Noticing Her Again

NEW YORK, NY (DPI) - Singer Mariah Carey yesterday urged Americans to return to normal and put the spotlight back on her. "We were all horrified by those terrible acts, but we've had plenty of time to mourn, and now it's important to resume our routines. I'll go back to touring and recording, and likewise you must resume following every single aspect of my existence. Mmm-kay?" said Carey. "Glitter flopped in the theaters because the American people were too scared to go out. Sales of my new album are in the toilet. My life is like, totally disrupted, and this is exactly what the turban guys want. We can't let terrorism win!"

Rock Group Anthrax Changes Name to Anthrax Starship

LOS ANGELES, CA (DPI) - Popular heavy metal band Anthrax has decided to change their name after a third person took ill with their namesake fatal disease. The band, whose top-selling albums include Spread the Spore and The Threat is Real, felt a change was necessary. "We knew the name was carnal and destructive and unashamedly violent," said lead singer Scott Ian, "But we don't want people to think we're actually mean or anything. " After vetoing other possibilities such as Extremist Hatred and Boxcutter, the band settled on the name Anthrax Starship, saying it was more sensitive to recent world events.

EPA Announces New Celebrity Emission Standards

WASHINGTON, DC (DPI) - Environmental Protection Agency head Christine Todd Whitman announced today the passage of the Celebrity Emission Standards Act of 2001, a far-reaching piece of legislation designed to curb the quantity and frequency of noxious pollutants allowed in exhaust gasses discharged from the nation's celebrities. "We are only caretakers of this planet," explained Whitman, "and we cannot allow the fumes emanating from pompous and self-important celebrities such as Barbra Streisand to endanger our Earth." Beginning immediately, EPA officials will be present at all awards shows and press conferences with orders to turn a high-pressure fire hose directly at prima donnas such as Alec Baldwin and Sting.
